Cannas have always been associated with large beds in public parks. For decades, they were cultivated in this manner around the globe. Today, dwarf canna plants are important components in mixed flower borders. They lend dramatic foliage and colourful blooms to the landscape and combine splendidly with softer flowers and graceful grasses. The key is to intersperse odd clumps throughout a particular section of the garden, never allowing them to dominate, but rather to compliment the other companion plants.

A new range of Canna called ‘Tropical’ is available in 6 different colours. Some are bright and vibrant whilst others are more pastel shades. Try them in your garden or in mixed pot plantings for guaranteed colour through the summer and autumn months.
